Setting and Accomplishing Goals – Part 1

  This week I’m going to be talking about Setting and Accomplishing Goals. I’ve got so many random thoughts about Goals, and goal setting that I decided to just start talkin’ about goals! “You will never reach your objective unless you’re 100 percent sure of what it is.” Failure to hit the bull’s eye is never the fault of the target. In order to improve your aim, you must improve yourself. Zig Ziglar said…”When it comes to goals, You can’t hit a target that you cannot see, and you cannot see a target that you do not have.” My next thought is that Oversleeping will never make your dreams come true. If you get up 15 minutes early and make progress on your goals each and every day, then little by little, over time, you can accomplish great things. People with Small Goals lack purpose – They have no logical reason to work on “time management”. People with Big Goals – they’re always running out of time and this is why they’ve gotta learn how to “prioritize”. My next thought is that Dissatisfaction and discouragement are not caused by the absence of things… they’re caused by the absence of vision and lack of clearly defined goals. – If you don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing, then you’ve probably lost sight of your vision and/or you don’t have clearly defined goals. And My last thought for today comes from the Prophets of old, who said… “And it shall come to pass that your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams.” My thought when reading this – was that you should write out your vision and speak forth your dreams, for the Prophets of old also said, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets.” I realize that you probably know most of these things, because winners understand setting and achieving goals and you are a winner, and given enough time, you WILL Win – Yes, you ARE a Winner.

Full Transcript: Hi, this is Don Howe, and the topic for this Golden Nugget – and for the next 4 Golden Nuggets after this one – is gonna be about setting and accomplishing Goals. I’ve got so many random thoughts about Goals, and goal setting that I decided to just start talkin’ about goals. The first random thought – that I wanna share – concerning goals – is that you will never reach your objective unless you’re 100 percent sure of what it is. Failure to hit the bull’s eye is never the fault of the target. In order to improve your aim, you must improve yourself. Zig Ziglar said… When it comes to goals, You can’t hit a target that you cannot see, and you cannot see a target that you do not have. My next thought is that “Oversleeping will never make your dreams come true.” If you get up 15 minutes early and make progress on your goals each and every day, then little by little, over time, you can accomplish great things. My next thought is that People with Small Goals lack purpose. They have no logical reason to work on “time management”. People with Big Goals – they’re always running out of time and this is why they’ve gotta learn how to “prioritize”. My next thought is that Dissatisfaction and discouragement are not caused by the absence of things… they’re caused by the absence of vision and lack of clearly defined goals. If you don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing, then you’ve probably lost sight of your vision and/or you don’t have clearly defined goals. And My last thought for today comes from the Prophets of old, who said… “And it shall come to pass that your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams.” My thought when reading this – was that you should write out your vision and speak forth your dreams, for the Prophets of old also said, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets.” I realize that you probably know most of these things, because winners understand setting and achieving goals and you are a winner, and given enough time, you WILL Win – Yes, you ARE a Winner.
